Rag Doll Sally


Good Morning! I am playing along with the challenge this week on the Simply Betty challenge blog and the challenge this week is a sketch challenge. There is a little bit of a twist though because you can use the sketch from any challenge. I used this week's sketch over at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. There were two sketches to choose from over there. I used Rag Doll Sally from Simply Betty Stamps and colored everything with Copics.
Other supplies used: Cuttlebug Skeleton Embossing Folder, DCWV papers, square eyelets from my stash and a Nestability.

I will tell you a funny little story. I know some of you are crafters like me and pull out way to many supplies when you craft and don't always put them right away when you are finished. I haven't been able to find my tiny scissors in forever. So I haven't really been able to cut out a lot of images, especially if they are very detailed. I was cleaning off my table last night and finally putting away a growing stack of paper and I found my scissors! I also found ten dollars and a paper pad that I thought I bought, couldn't find and then bought again.

Thanks for visiting!

Gina, this is adorable and I love that design you used for the cute image. Your coloring is just super too.
Glad you found those scissors - AND the $10.00! Maybe I need to go clean off my table in the craft room!

Just delightful, Gina! I love the colors on your card and of course the lil rag dollie - is just delightful - wonderfully done!

This is beautiful, Gina! Love how you have colored that sassy image and how you set the black background behind her. And yes, I do that all the time, lol. Problem is not finding the thing you lost for a looong time, but trying hard NOT to buy it again, LOL.
